Watermelon Mint Refresher combines fresh watermelon juice with mint tea, to create a refreshing sugar free thirst quencher. Perfect for hot summer days!
Summer is such a wonderful season. All the sun and fun, BBQ’s, holidays and outings. Summer is all about wonderful food too. Drinks can be tasty and nutritious without being full of sugar.
Watermelon is one of my favourite summer fruits. You can use it so many ways. Just cut and eat, use it in salads, frozen treats, grilled, or used in drinks like in this Watermelon Mint Refresher.
It is great when you can add nutrition into your day so easily. We all know how good watermelon is for you. It helps keep you hydrated, contains vitamins, is fat and sodium free, and low in calories. Did you know watermelon can be considered a fruit or a vegetable? That is unique for sure.
I really like iced tea, but often they can be sweet. This refresher is a combination of mint tea and watermelon juice. No added sugar since the watermelon is nice and sweet on its own.
It is so easy to make watermelon juice since it contains a lot of water. I just use my blender on the “liquify” cycle, put in pieces of watermelon, and in a few seconds I have watermelon juice.
For the mint tea you can use whatever kind you like. I happen to prefer a tea that is more spearmint than peppermint, so for this I used Jade Citrus Mint from Teavana®.
You can create you own blend using whatever mint tea you like. Just steep some tea (I like to use double the amount so the tea is nice and strong), let it cool and add it to the watermelon juice. This recipe has a ratio of 1 part tea and 2 parts juice, but feel free to experiment and come up with your perfect combination.
Add ice, a few watermelon cubes for garnish (and eating) and ENJOY!! Watermelon Mint Refresher is a no sugar added, nutritious, delicious and easy summer beverage.
